I have a yellow question mark in my system hardware properties, which shows
SM bus controller
What does this mean? and how do i get rid of it?

Make sure you have all the drivers installed - if you dont have the driver CD Go to the manufactures site for your motherboard, locate your model of board - download them.

Then run windows update - that will sort out the SM Bus Controller if the manufactures drivers dont.
